Sol Summary – February 10th

Sol: Sol #6
Summary Title: The sun came out for our EVA #7
Author’s name: Annalea Beattie
Mission Status: Nominal
Sol Activity Summary: It snowed overnight but dried off quickly around the hab and the sun came out. We all did yoga led by Rajvi. After breakfast we spent the morning discussing the Mid-Mission Report. We waited for Mission Support to confirm our proposed EVA #7 (which was pending, weather permitting). An hour before we were due to leave, we were given the go ahead. Good news for our crew. EVA #7 headed off by foot east of the hab after a quick lunch. This afternoon I compiled the Mid-Mission report and made a fruit crumble. We kept in close communication with our away team. Later Daniel worked in the Science Dome on his samples successfully extracting DNA. More cooking and more work on the Mid-Mission Report followed. We are still busy now with our routine chores, checking the plants, the suits, the systems, all the things we need to do to keep our hab running smoothly.
Look Ahead Plan: Yesterday’s postponed EVA to the south of Cowboy Corner is requested for tomorrow for Clare, Bharti and me with the goals of slope measurements and drawing samples in situ the field.
